Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) encompasses a number of different therapies such as acupuncture, cupping, nutrition, massage, and herbal medicine which has evolved over thousands of years. Depending on the imbalance you are experiencing, your practitioner will create a customized protocol to address a variety of health concerns.
Much like the electric wiring of our homes, our bodies are filled with energy pathways that play a significant role in our wellbeing. As a faulty wire or connection can cause a problem with the electricity, an imbalanced pathway in the body can cause health problems. Acupuncture works by sending a signal to your brain that it needs to address an unbalanced area in the body by either lowering the excess energy in that location or raising its current deficiency. By addressing these imbalances, acupuncture can relieve chronic pain, headaches or migraines, increase energy, improve sleep, and more. This is done by the stimulation of targeted areas with very thin, sterilized needles to encourage the circulation of blood, nutrients, and energy to restore balance and encourage the body’s own natural healing processes.
